China's Southern Powerhouse


The story of China's high-rise technology hub Shenzhen, which emerged from rural obscurity just four decades ago, is now the stuff of global legend. This book celebrates this spectacular 40-year journey with a collection of mesmerising photographs, the likes of which have not been brought together in a book before. From sleepy fishing harbours captured by veteran photojournalist Zhang Xiaoyu to Wu Guoyong's dynamic drone photography, this book offers a rare perspective of twenty-first century urbanism. A preface by Dr. Wong How Man and essays by seasoned Beijing-based travel writer Thomas Bird, esteemed Hong Kong-based journalists David Dodwell and Johan Nylander and Shenzhen-based tech editor Mike Bossick, bring context to a visual narrative of a city Lonely Planet recently placed second on its Best in Travel 2019 list. Take a tour of China's `Silicon Valley' with this unique visual biography of a neon-lit metropolis defined by boundless ambition.
